Are you sure the *.dsr files were created with CrystalReport?. As I
remember, VB's Add-in report tool "DataReport" creates *.dsr, 'cause I did
some report, using DataReport, a few years ago. I do not think you can
convert it to Crystal Report.

Also, converting a VB database application into a .NET database application
is no good, since ADO.NET is so different from those data accessing handling
used in classical VB, that it is almost guaranteed that you need to redesign
the app to take advantage of what ADO.NET offers.

In vb6.0 there is an option to add crystal report from the
project menu so u can add the crystal report but it save
in vb as .dsr file but you can use all the functionality
of crystal report through vb , so i have done exactly the
same and now when i am converting the *.dsr file to rpt
its giving me the error.
Also there is an option in vb.net to convert .dsr to .prt
file using the same i am converting but no luck...
